Abstract: Objectives The occurrence and mortality of vasospastic angina pectoris (VAP) is largely unknown in western countries. Our objective was to darify the occurrence, gender-distribution and mortality of VAP in Finland using a population-based hospital registry. Methods We studied consecutive patients aged >= 18 years hospitalized with VAP as the primary cause of admission in Finland during 2004-2014. The data were collected from obligatory nationwide registries. During the study period 1762 admissions were recorded. Results Majority of all VAP patients were male (59.7%) and mean age was 65.7 +/- 12.0 years. Annual admission rate for VAP was 2.29/100 000 person-years. Men were in higher risk for VAP than women (admission rate 3.00/100 000 vs 1.68 / 100 000; RR 1.70; p Conclusions Men have higher risk for vasospastic angina caused admissions. Likelihood of vasospastic angina admission was highest in aged population. The 3-year all-cause mortality was 15.5%. Mortality was associated with increasing age, comorbidities and non-obstructive VAP diagnosis but was similar between genders.
